  • Neighborhood: Allston-Brighton
  • Directions: B-Line to Harvard Avenue at Harvard Avenue

Great Scott has helped put the rock back into Allston Rock City. The venue on the college-centered corner of Harvard and Comm Aves shed its frat boy label in 2004, soon becoming a hotbed for rising buzz bands, indie and electro dance parties and anything else worth blogging about. With live music nightly and the Pill dance party every Friday, Great Scott has become one of Boston’s most revered rock clubs, hosting national and international acts in an intimate setting before they graduate to larger venues. No food, cash only. Tickets at the bar or Weeknight shows are 18-plus and Friday/Saturday is 21-plus. Doors open at 9 pm.
